New Tactic for Controlling Blood Sugar in Diabetes Contradicts Current View of the Disease

 

Study finds inflammation may be part of the solution, not the problem

Children's Hospital BostonBoston, MA – Increased low-grade inflammation in the body resulting from obesity is widely viewed as contributing to type 2 diabetes. Going against this long-held belief, researchers from Children’s Hospital Boston report that two proteins activated by inflammation are actually crucial for maintaining good blood sugar levels – and that boosting the activity of these proteins can normalize blood sugar in severely obese and diabetic mice.

The research, led by Umut Ozcan, MD, in the Division of Endocrinology at Children’s, is reported in the October issue of Nature Medicine, published online September 4th. «Read the rest of this article»

Martha White®Nashville, TN – Think back to the first thing you remember baking. If you were a child, you were probably baking with a family member, many times a parent or grandparent. Spending time in the kitchen is a timeless family tradition that brings loved ones together.

“These days, there are so many options for family entertainment, but simple things done together as a family often create the most cherished memories,” observes the Martha White® baking expert Linda Carman. “Finding time to cook with your kids or grandkids can be about much more than preparing food. Having fun in the kitchen can be quality time spent together, time to talk and listen to each other.”

Just last week, in the midst of the Barge Port controversy, the city council had the time to debate how the Mayor casts her vote.

You may recall, the powers of the Mayor were the major sticking point of our revised city charter getting support from our lackluster state representatives. They focused on the Mayor’s veto power, his or her ability to have too much power, and control legislation.
